SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - April 21, 2009) -

WHAT:   The Urban League 20th Annual Barbara E. Webb Diversity Works -
        Career Opportunity Exchange will give local employers the
        opportunity to screen potential candidates for their upcoming
        employment opportunities.  The candidate pool will be especially
        impressive in this current economic climate and the Career
        Opportunity Exchange will provide a vital connection between job
        seekers and employers.

        The CPUC and SDG&E "We Care California" resource fair will be held
        in collaboration with the Career Opportunity Exchange and will
        provide attendees with information on how to save money, such as
        through the California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) program,
        which offers qualifying customers a 20-percent discount on their
        energy bill, as well as about programs from community-based
        organizations, telephone and water companies, financial assistance
        and counseling services, and more.

        In addition, a series of workshops and presentations titled
        Rethink. Retool. Take Control, presented by the San Diego
        Workforce Partnership, will give attendees advice on job search
        techniques, education and training strategies, and information on
        financial literacy and assistance services.
